The goal of my FAG entries are to help others searching for their family to find a ancestoral burial and other family information.
The postings made here basically come from two sources. Most of the postings are from extensive family genealogical records. For those with family connections I have posted bio info that focuses on the person and shared some of their available family info.
The balance of the burial postings are for individuals for which I have no ties. These postings are primarily from cemetery censuses with a added focus on veterans. I've also posted memorials for unrelated individuals that shared some of my ancestral surnames.
Hopefully these postings may help you make a connection.
I appreciate the opportunity that Find A Grave gives everyone to learn and share. If you want to review or add to what is already shown, or discuss posting please contact me.
RE: Memorial 28678969 First, that section of ground is for the Evans family. If you look at all the grave markers there this marker is the largest and most prevalent for the Evans family. John Evans Sr was the most distinguished member of the Evans family. He lived only a block away from the cemetery, his son also only lived a couple blocks away, his home still stands on Sharpless Rd "John Evans Sr.". John donated the land the church is built on and formed the London Britain Township both in the year 1725. John owned most if not all of the land in London Britain township where the Church is located. I could not 100% read or say this is his grave marker but I would put a stake on it that it is. Also note he died two years after his son, John would've been buried next to his son. His grave marker would've been like his sons but better, John Sr was so much more well known to the residents all around. Looking at the choices you have this would have to be his grave marker. John Sr. would not have had just a stone, there is no others of this type to choose from and this type of marker would have not washed away in any flood!
RE: Jno. B. Ackburn Thank you for posting the military info. One question--how will anyone find him in a search, if the name remains entered incorrectly? If you look carefully at the top photo of the marker, you can see the bottom horizontal leg of the partially missing letter "L." The name was not inscribed incorrectly, the stone is damaged. Also, the policy does state to use full names when known. No one searching for John Blackburn will find the memorial for Jno Ackburn. Will you please reconsider correcting his name? Thank you!
Walter Buckingham Spouse Hello! You submitted parents and a spouse for Mr. Buckingham. I trust your information, however I wonder if you noticed the photo attached to the listing for the spouse you specified (Rachel C Hildebrand Find A Grave #94279452)... it looks like it's for two other people (photograph added and page created by the same contributor). Any idea what's up? I submitted a message to that contributor as well, but I figured I'd point it out to you prior to making the approval on your changes.
Job Meredith Frazier I submitted, through proper channels with Find A Grave, a request to change the links for his father and mother. This request based on the family history book by Griffin Guy Frazier. Refer to page 35 Ref # 6 for parentage, and Ref # 26 for Job and his siblings. Father should be 13218276 & Mother should be 13218268.
